One of the huge bonuses of living and working at DCS is that we are regularly exposed to their wonderful choir. This afternoon we had the privilege of accompanying them to the Da Vinci hotel in Sandton, Johannesburg’s well-heeled business suburb (and Africa’s richest square mile, according to the signs.) They were providing the entertainment for the launch of a British Council-sponsored youth initiative, named COSY (Creating Opportunities for South africa’s Youth); it was ironic that cosy perfectly described the cramped and over-warm venue. Despite this, they produced their usual superb and consummately professional job.
From a personal perspective, their performance was too short (more Exploiting South Africa’s Youth for the Benefit of their Launch) but it was still wonderful.
